Maeve Binchy is one of those rare writers – like Dickens, Wilde, Shaw, Behan – whose work springs from their larger-than-life personalities. Their unique voices are captured in their work. This novel was ahead of its time. Maeve highlighted some of the major social issues we are still dealing with today, all through the prism of Maeve Binchy’s trademark wisdom, warmth, and humour.
